    Great as always! I especially like the Airline Jct. Tower. What is that green structure behind the train with all the raillings and walkways?

    Thanks to all for the kind words.
    Ralph, that tower is an old kit from AHM. The structure in the background is a coal dealership, named for a friend. It's scratchbuilt, although I did use Walthers styrene brick sheets for the main office. The main girders and the stairways are from Central Valley, roof trusses are built up from Evergreen styrene angles, and the siding is by Campbell.
    Here are a few more views from the other side.

    And finally, as seen from the "Highline", with the "Northern Lights" in the upper left background

    I see how it works now. Nicely done Wayne! Modelers don't always think to include the office part of such an industry like you did. I like that last photo of the long switching lead into the structure!
